      I bet even half of these features won't make it to India and it'll be priced like twice of the international rates.

      Why are car companies encouraging drivers to control a vehicle when tired? This is dangerous.

      First 3 series, EVER, I dont like... The car lost its DNA. It looks lika a KIA in and out. Those black plastic bumper fillers, the square gauges, the inside lit up in all colors of rainbow . And now it is as big as 5 series...

      I miss the angel/halo eyes on BMW's they looked so cool back then. Wish they still had them. It was BMW signature.

      I get that these reviews are probably meant for a different audience than myself but for this car in particular why is the first thing to know the infotainment system?
      The instrument cluster must surely be priority over that not to mention how it drives

      Nice short review. I hate those reviews that only show pictures and music and no narrative. Can get the same information from a magazine. I have owned the 3 series and the 5 both past and present. I find drivng the 3 diesel more enjoyable and get fantastic gas milage on long trips. But, both are great cars.

      Lots of girly men with beard envy in the comments. If you can't grow one don't insult a real man who can!

      BMW 8 Speed automatics are now excellent, seriously you don't need manuals or dual clutch. I love manuals but BMWs auto box especially with 2 litre diesel is so good now that driveability, performance and economy are not compromised whatsoever, always in the correct gear, always revving at less than 2k, silky super smooth changes. The 2litre d F60 Mini works even better with the 8 speed auto due to light weight car and have driven a 520d with same auto box. In traffic queues the auto box makes everything much easier than manual. The 520d I drove was great.. stunning car BUT I declined buying the 520d because like so many people now realising sitting uncomfortably flat to the road, electric seat adjustment is rubbish for tall drivers, average visibility at best and very poor rear and poor mirror visibility coupled with poor boot space.. hatches much better and BMW high middle age maintenance, expensive tyres, poor record of electrical reliability etc etc make other SUV style cars far more appealing... so every aspect great just BMW low rider saloons are no longer as cracked up to be as good as modern SUV with much improved everyday seating position and flexibility.

      renewer fake, no. It opens when the engine needs cooling. Probably the most real grille out there!
